Madden 12 launches in August regardless of NFL lockout

No NFL? No problem.  Apparently EA Sports isn’t the least bit shaken up by the still possible prospect that a NFL lockout will result in the complete lack of an NFL season, as the game will launch in August either way.  This of course provides an interesting concept, a game based on a NFL roster for a season that never happens.  Of course EA may be hoping that the lack of live football, with real players, on a real field will make more people interested in getting their NFL kick somewhere else, and that somewhere else may just be Madden 12.  They may need the extra cash after dealing with all the recent lawsuits.

About Tristan Rendo

I've made movies, written and performed music, and in January of 2011 got bored and started the awesome gaming site you see before you. My gaming roots began with the original NES, and endless hours spent spilling quarters into machines at the local arcade. I have a personal collection of over 200 Nintendo 64 games, and for many years it was the only system I owned. I re-entered the modern generation of gaming consoles when I decided to purchase a 360. I typically prefer the single player experience of games, so I’m usually playing through some single-player campaign, but can occasionally be found doing some damage in Halo Reach.
